Applicants Can Now Print Result Notification Slip-JAMB

The Joint Admissions and matriculation Board (JAMB) on Sunday directed candidate who wrote the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)  to print their result notification slips, in a statement that was disclosed through JAMB weekly bulletin.

It also stated that the 2020 policy meeting for all tertiary institutions is scheduled for 16th June, 2020.

In a meeting that is expected to be chaired by the Hon. Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, while Head of institutions are expected to attend.

The policy meeting will be the avenue where stake holders are expected to fix the cut-off marks for 20200 admissions.

The statement released by JAMB also confirmed that the result had been made available through texts to candidates on request and can be printed from the board’s website for free at: www.jamb.gov.ng

Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin revealed that;

“All a candidates needs to do after visiting the site is to click on QUICK LINKS, then on “E-facility” where the candidate would be required to provide his/her registration details and the result notification slip would be displayed for printing.

“The printing of the result notification slip is free as it is different from the original slip that comes with the candidate’s pictures.

“Candidate can print their result slip anywhere in the country even from the comfort of their homes once there is internet access.

“The board has, until now restricted the printing of result notification slips and made it available to candidates only through SMS to avoid anxiety on the part of candidates as well as prevent clustering at cyber cafes with the attendant risk of COVID-19 contagion all in a bid to print result notifications.

“This new development, however, is predicated on the gradual easing of the lockdown and resumption of economic activities in most parts of the country.

“The board wishes to advise candidates to be wary of fraudlent element masquerading as JAMB agents stating that it has not mandated any person or group to do the printing on behalf of the board.

“Candidates are to note that delegating this responsibility to third parties could result in willful manipulation of their result.

“Recall that last year some candidates who abused this privilege by attempting to manipulate their scores were caught and are currently serving various jail terms. Candidates are advised to note that any attempt to forge the slip would attract stiff sanctions.

“The decentralization of printing of result notification slip was done mainly to comply with the directives of NCDC and other relevant agencies on social distancing. It is against this background that the board is urging candidates to note that it is incumbent on them to adhere to other precautionary health measures such as wearing of face masks, washing hands, among others, in order to mitigate the spread of the virus.

JAMB had earlier announced that cut-off marks has not yet been fixed for this year’s UTME exams, however, with the latest development, when the policy meeting is held, the cut-off marks would be made public to prospective candidates seeking admission.
